On Blackpoint Wildlife Drive, at the same pool where we had seen the Tricolored Herons, Reddish Egrets, Roseate Spoonbills and Willets in my previous posts, we also found several Black-necked Stilts. Several walked pretty close by while we were parked. These birds can be a little bit of a challenge to photograph–the problem is they eye. Without catch light in the eye, it sometimes seems like they simply don’t have eyes. The black feathers surrounding the eye cause it to disappear. So I’m always glad when the stilt turns in such a way to give me that little catch light that makes all the difference.
